Pressestimmen"Powerful evidence that we must look beyond the classroom for ways to improve the education and life chances of poor students." - From the Foreword by Jean Anyon, City University of New York "At last, a book that effectively dispels the model minority myth. Lew's detailed and powerful analysis reminds us that culture not only does not determine achievement but that class matters in profound and complex ways." - Pedro Noguera, New York University "A nuanced account of the impact of social class variability on Asian American achievement. This book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of immigrant students." - Stacey J. Lee, University of Wisconsin, Madison"
